SEPTIC SYSTEM INSTALLATION
ADB Construction and Septic has experience installing the most complex residential septic systems. We can see the project through from test holes to design to installation, so you don't have to worry about hiring anyone else.
PROS AND CONS OF A SEPTIC SYSTEM
Home septic systems are cost-effective and durable (when properly installed and maintained). They are also environmentally friendly, because they remove bacteria and recycle water back into the soil, and they can increase your home's water-efficiency.
Periodic maintenance includes pumping the tank every 3-5 years, and there is potential for backed up drains and ruptured pipes. Fortunately, regular maintenance can help to identify and prevent problems before they become a major issues.
TWO TYPES OF SEPTIC SYSTEMS
Wastewater is treated in the tank, with heavier solids being broken down by bacteria at the bottom of the tank and partially treated water dispersed to the drainfield.
Alternative systems still use tanks but also incorporate other methods to further treat the wastewater, account for high water table or poor soil, and produce a cleaner end result.
CAN I DIY MY NEW SEPTIC TANK?
Please don't. Septic tanks are essentially containers of large quantities of wastewater and raw sewage buried next to your house...and your neighbors. Mistakes can be costly and dangerous, such as E. coli outbreaks and accidentally unearthed power lines.
